* In the [[UltimateMarvel Ultimate Galactus]] mini-series, [[spoiler: Jean Grey and Professor X, combining their power with an enhanced version of Cerebro, link every human on the planet to beam thoughts of living at Galactus until it got scared off. Well, vaporizing 30% of it by ''shooting a goddamn Big Bang at it'' helped too.]]

A common subtext to the trope is that the worst villains are inevitably weaker because they don't have friends to rely on (see ThePowerOfFriendship). It's also a handy way of showing that the hero is very strong without nullifying the importance of the other cast members. Often combined with GondorCallsForAid, when the main group needs more energy than they themselves can generate. May be fueled by {{Innocent Bystander}}s. May include the PowerOfTrust and/or ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve. See also ICantDoThisByMyself.

*** Cell also has the Spirit Bomb in ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse''; when he throws it, he shouts "[[LampshadeHanging See? I told you I could do it!]]"

* The Genki Dama[=/=]Spirit Bomb in ''Manga/DragonBall'', which is powered by living things lending their energy to a good heart, is the former TropeNamer. This evolves throughout the series. The first time it's used, it's just the planet's power itself. The second time, it draws on the power of other planets and moons nearby. The third time, everybody on Earth sent power, only to be outdone by the final time, where ''[[GondorCallsForAid everybody he'd met across the universe]]'' helped. It should be noted that despite all the trouble involved in using it, until the very end of ''Anime/DragonBallZ'' the Spirit Bomb [[TheWorfBarrage never actually works]].

** In ''Dragon Ball Xenoverse'', the better ending (obtained if the player defeats the FinalBoss before Goku teleports in to help) shows the [[PlayerCharacter Time Patroller]] getting Spirit Bomb-like energy donations from ghostly images of Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Piccolo and Krillin and using them to launch a massive [[KamehameHadoken Kamehameha]] that vaporizes Demigra.

* ''Film/XMenApocalypse'': [[spoiler:This is how En Sabah Nur is finally defeated. He folds under the combined might of Magneto's barrage of metal, Cyclops' optic blast, Storm's lightning and Jean Grey's Phoenix powers. He's completely vaporized by their unified onslaught, simply because nothing less was going to stop him.]]

*''Manga/WorldTrigger'': The Trigger ability "Fullguard" (literally "Double Defense") is a defensive variant. Requiring 4 Trigger users to combine their powers, it creates a shield [[spoiler: strong enough to block repeated attack from the very strong Aftokrator Triggers]].
